WILLIAM KIRBY Education Commissioner The Permanent School Fund PSF is one of Texas most en during and important legacies to future Over its 133year the Fund has helped pay for part of the costs of educating millions of texas school despite the past success and future potential of the it is being threatened by some very shortsighted proposals to resolve the states current fiscal Created with an initial million appropriation by the 1854 Texas the Permanent School Fund was established as a trust fund that would forever guarantee a portion of the costs of public The only time in history that it has been raided was in when some of the funds were used to purchase Confederate railroad Defaults on those bonds and the devaluation of Confederate currency nearly bankrupted the Since the Permanent School Fund has paid out nearly billion to school More than billion from the sale and rental of public lands and from mineral rights on public land and tidelands has been deposited into the These assets are invested in stocks and which give the Fund a current market value of Interest and dividends from PSF coupled with certain dedicated tax make up the Available School This fund provides an equal per student allotment to all Texas school districts each with the remainder of the costs of public education paid from the general revenue sources tax The PSF now provides a total of million a or per to local school Ten years it provided just per child If the PSFs earning capacity is it is expected to provide local school districts with billion over the next 10 Thats an average of million each year tha taxpayers will not have to The key to ensuring this tremendous resource for our children lies in keeping the PSF In the past as the decline of the oil and gas industry has thrust the state into severe economic some interest has been expressed in amending the TexasConstitution to allow some of the principal of the PSF to be ex For the sake of our children and our states longterm economic we cannot allow this to There are only two ways the Fund can grow oil and gas revenues from public lands and from the capital gains that are realized through As out states current economic crisis so well points oil and gas revenues are a depletable and finite Income from capital on the other can increase only if the principal is If the principal is investment earnings that make up the Available School Fund will decline significantly and the less revenue provided by the the more tax dollars in general revenue fuids it will take to finance public any expenditure of the principal of the PSF will be tan tamount to a tax bill on future Lost principal from the Fund would significantly impair its potential for and the lost income eventually would have to be replaced by tax Money spent from the principal is lost forever whereas money preserved will be able to grow indefinitely and offset larger and larger portions of the overall state costs of public A raid on the Permanent School Pund would have other negative results that would affect local school districts local In the voters of Texas approved a constitutional amendment that allows the prin cipal and income of the PSF to be used to back locallyissued school This bond guarantee program particularly helps poor school districts which cannot get good bond ratings or in some any ratings at all to issue bonds at the lowest possible interest If the principal of the Fund is allowed to be any school district that is not AAArated on its own would have to pay additional financing charges when it borrows to build new at a sub stantial extra cost to local tax A raid on the Fund would seriously jeopardize the bond guarantee program as it was en visioned by the Legislature and approved by the voters of It also would threaten the excellent credit rating of the Fund Those who advocate invading the PSF to help resolve todays financial problems would argue that it makes good business But does it Does it make sense to use your retirement money to pay overdue bills leaving you without any savings to face the future The only way our state can diversify its economy and regain its financial health for the future is to have a high quality education and an excellent education system must be adequately I urge every Texas tax payer to fight against any move to tap into the Permanent School Let your legislators know that you want to protect this The Fund belongs to your children and all We should for expediencys sell out the inheritance our forefathers so wisely provided for generations of Texas school ON MAKE
